    Because fed, rafa, and djok are all out of Paris for the first time this year, there will be a new winner of an ATP Master Series 1000 event. Those that are left in the draw include Monaco, Tipsarevic, Del Potro, Llodra, Raonic, Queerey, Janowicz, Wawrinka, Ferrer, Berdych, Almagro, and Tsonga. I personally think Berdych is due to take his second ever Master Series event, ironically his only other master series came in Paris in 2005, back when it was on carpet. Who do you think will?

    Not Murray :lol:


    I say Tsonga or Berdych.....previous Paris Winners. Though it would be fitting to see Del Potro win the title.

    I hope delpo but i voted for Berdych. Tsonga could also be a good bet with home crowd advantage.

    Wasnt Delpo the one who couldnt last a 5 setter against Fed recently. He managed to squeak past last week. Hard to see him get 3 consecutive tournament wins in 3 weeks.

    Perhaps he will lose to Llodra today.

    Del Potro too is now out of the running.

    So I'm hoping now for Ferrer to finally win his first Masters shield but somehow suspect Berdych will now take this one for the second time since 2005!

    Ferrer or Delpo. I'd like Jano to win though.

    Del Potro's to lose. His best tennis is too good for anyone left, other than maybe a hot Tsoinga, but he hasnt exactly been in form lately.

    Simon deserves his own poll option more than Querrey, Wawrinka, Tipsarevic, or Almagro. Unlike them he has been very close to winning a MAsters, in fact was very close to winning the WTF.

    Knowing the top 4 usually bows out early in Paris, I predicted a Berdych-Tsonga final in the ATP fantasy challenge. Make it happen lads!

    OP you forgot Murray in the thread name. There hasn't been a Masters series winner outside the big four since 2010.

    Anyway, I'm going with Berdych. He won the event in 2005 and is clearly the strongest player left.

    Berdych seems to be struggling with Anderson, it was very close match in RG, and Anderson is not anything special on clay...

    But Berdych was strange back then. He was knocked out on both 1R of Wimbledon and Olympics...

    Would love to see Ferrer win one. I'd say he's the third most likely after Berdych and Tsonga.

    I too would love it if Ferrer were to finally win a masters.
